Autocross & 3S Challenge


Autocross:
Do you think your ride handles pretty well? Then put it to the test on the autocross course! The autocross is a low speed competition designed to highlight the handling, acceleration and braking of your ride. The wide sweepers, tight hairpins, chicanes, and slalom sections of the course will keep your adrenaline pumping from start to finish.  You’re guaranteed to enjoy a lot of track time over the course of the three day event. Please see below for classes, rules, and safety requirements!

3S Challenge: The 3S Challenge puts your ability to Speed, Stop, and Steer your blue oval to the test! Drivers had better be proficient at all three if they hope to be competitive in this event segment. The format pits both drivers side-by-side in a low speed drag race, a 180-degree turnaround at the end, a slalom on the return, and a stop box to complete the run. Course layout will be dependent on available space. Each “run” will be a total of left side course time added to right side course time. The winner is determined by the fastest combined left side and right side run. All runs must be clean – any contact with course markers, cones or stop box cones will result in a DNF.

UPDATE: Free track day at NCM track on Thursday to Autocross/Grand Champion participants.  We’ve partnered with the SCCA to integrate our event with their Time Trial Nationals going on at the NCM Motorsports Park Friday thru Sunday and we are hosting a free Test and Tune day on Thursday for anyone that registers for their Time Trials Nationals event OR our Autocross/Grand Champion package.  Thursday’s Test and Tune will include training and extra track time to get you introduced to the track!  Training also goes on throughout the entire weekend at TT Nats.

REGISTRATION LIMITED TO FIRST 125 VEHICLES!

Autocross Rules:

In order to drive competition down through the field, awards will also be given for various time classes to be determined. For example, if the course is a 40 second time for the top 10-15 competitors, we will create a 45 second class, a 50 second class and 55 second class. Those cars closest in time to the designated class will be eligible for autocross awards only. Race directors have complete discretion to determine the time classes and how many.

  1. Only the registered participant may drive the vehicle.
  2. Each segment of the event will be timed to 0.00.00. There is no maximum number of runs. Winners will be the vehicles with the lowest time.
  3. Any cone moved out of its box or knocked down will be assessed a two second penalty during the autocross. Any cones that are touched after the finish timers will result in a DNF of that run.
  4. A runoff between the quickest five vehicles may be held, time permitting. The fastest combined time of three laps will determine the winner.
  5. Race director and event organizers will have COMPLETE discretion to deny or remove from competition anyone in the event for any reason.
  6. The autocross may be run rain or shine at event organizer’s discretion.
  7. The autocross event will count toward the Holley Grand Champion award.

The Autocross event will count toward the Holley Ford Fest Grand Champion award for competitors who compete in Drag Race, Autocross, & 3S Challenge.
